Hi ,I have had increase bloating weight gain low back pain gi upset urinary frequency abdominal pain .I have a history of kidney stones and recently passed one about a month ago.Usually once the stone has passed my symptoms resolve yet all these symptoms persist.I had ablation surgery years ago and have'nt had my period since til this month bleed for 2 days.My Mom passed away in September of Ovarian cancer .I had a ct scan in the hospital w/o contrast for the diagnosis of kidney stones.Would the CT scan picked up anything in my ovaries.My daughter is pestering me to get follow up but I thought if there was anything there it would have shown on the CT scan Any one can help let me know what you think ...
The kidneys are situated at a level higher than the ovaries. Hence if only an abdominal CT scan was done then the ovarian cancer can be missed. CT scan of the pelvis is necessary to diagnose ovarian cancer. Consult your Doctor.
Hope this helps.
